This will be the fourth in an ongoing series of annual summer schools in theoretical physics held in Canada. The first and second editions of these schools were held at the University of British Columbia. The third summer school took place at the Perimeter Institute in Waterloo.

These schools are intended to educate graduate students and young researchers on current developments in string theory and its interface with gravity and cosmology.

Some scholarships for partial financial support are available. The number of scholarships, as well as the number of spaces at the school are limited. Those who wish to attend are asked to please complete the application form before April 1st. (Applications after the deadline will be considered if space remains.)
